Brown Eyed Susan Prize Giveaway

Brown Eyed Susan Prize Giveaway

This week on the blog, we celebrate the release of our most popular pattern from Juju’s Loops ~ Brown Eyed Susan and share some Uncommon Thread love with a prize giveaway.

We have a Pom Pom trunk show in store and some more EYF news to share, so read on!

Brown Eyed Susan

Brown Eyed Susan was the cover knit and most popular pattern from our book Juju’s Loops. We auctioned off the last copy of Juju’s Loops at the beginning of the new year. There are no more books left!

However, we’ve published a few of the patterns as individuals, such as the Cedar Shake Mitts, and the Oak Knot Hat.  Now, Brown Eyed Susan will join them as a printed pattern and a PDF download.

Brown-Eyed Susan is a crescent-shaped shawl with petal pleats at the bottom edge. It can be knit in one solid colour, striped with a matching or contrast colour petal pleat border, or given a “brown eye” by knitting the first 23 rows in a solid colour.

We love the cover sweater, Durumi designed by Isabell Kraemer, which uses the gorgeous Daruma Genmou DK. It’s very soft and lofty. Perfect for a cool spring day!

Edinburgh Yarn Festival 2018

We’ll bring a range of our most recent patterns to Edinburgh. We know many of you love to cast on while you’re visiting Edinburgh, and need a printed pattern to get on with. You can expect to see Brown Eyed Susan, Pinwheel Mitts and some special kits we have planned.

  1. What a gorgeous shawl, it looks so cosy. I think I prefer the green colourway, but maybe that’s because my thoughts have turned to spring!!

  2. I cannot wait till you release Cinnamon Girl as a PDF, too! I really like the original colours of Brown Eyed Susan – I am all into browns and pinks and other warm colours. The shawl looks just gorgeous styled with those old-fashioned linen dresses and tunics. I love it!

  3. I have knit with The Uncommon Thread yarn in the past and it is so lovely. I have not used the singles before but it would be wonderful to win and give them a try

    • A beautiful all year round accessory for any wardrobe, really versatile for both day and evening wear. Absolutely stunning!

  4. Just fabulous. Love the citrus blend of colours. Loop you never fail to tempt me into new projects even though I have sooo many already that I need to finish first!!

  5. Those colours are just fabulous and dreamy I wouldn’t have put them together like you have but it just makes you want to cast on straight away!! Exciting!!

  6. Great combination! I’ve had this pattern in my queue for ages, and really rate Uncommon thread yarn. Excellent xx

  7. What a pretty shawl and the green colour way looks just like the thin glaze of colour that the fields around me are wearing just now – Spring MUST Be coming

  8. Pick meeeeee
    I love the colours and this shawl is already on my to do list (I have the Juju’s loops book).
    I’m not a speedy knitter so it would be nice to have one to wear this year

  9. Wonderful!! After making your Piccadilly in Uncommon Thread I’d LOVE to make the Brown Eyed Susan! I love it!!

  10. Matching the colours of the loch and trees outside with a wee breeze, perfect day for this beautiful shawl.

  11. This is a beautiful pattern from a beautiful book! I love pretty much every pattern contained and have knit several lovelies from it. Brown Eyed Susan is a favorite and so great in that we have options for color, size, yarn weight. I’ve completed a small one color, the larger multi is on my list of to do’s :)
    Have a great time in Edinburgh!

  12. Oh my goodness. This has now bubbled to the top of the big list of projects in waiting. What intense and vibrant shades of yarn….beautiful.

  13. OMG! I have knitted lots of shawls and enjoy wearing all of them. They are perfect for wrapping around you during yoga relaxation. This one has to be my next project. Such beautiful colours.

  14. I am so happy to have the original book and this pattern has always been on my mind to knit. It is so gorgeous. That Fjord colour is amazing. What a great giveaway. Thanks

  15. A gorgeous shawl, love the Green Eye version. We are going into Autumn here in Australia. Would be a lovely knit for our winter.

  16. Gorgeous yarns, I love the subtle colour variation within the skeins. And the pleated edging on the shawl is really beautiful!

  17. This design is an immediate ‘yes’ for me.
    I go by instinct when choosing patterns and I love this one.
    It’s versatile, clever and so pretty. No wonder it’s the favourite pattern from the book.

  18. Please enter me in the Brown (Green) Eyed Susan Giveaway … I am already entered via Instagram and would like a second chance. Thanks!

  19. I made the shawl in the original, but would love to make it again in this lovely color combination!
